About

I am Faculty in the Center for Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Denver, CO.  I have a pending appointment as Associate Professor in the Department of Family Medicine in the CU School of Medicine (Denver).

I’m trained as an attorney, an historian, and a public health ethicist.  I have two principal lines of research — one in public health ethics, law, and policy, and one in the history of medicine.

In the former stream, I work primarily on

  • ethical, legal, and policy implications of the social determinants of health;
  • health inequalities;
  • ethics and mild traumatic brain injury in sports;
  • the inequitable undertreatment of chronic pain;
  • health stigma, especially as to noncommunicable disease.

In the latter stream, I work on two central topics:

  • the history of pain without lesion in 19th and early 20th c. U.S. & Great Britain; and
  • the history of medical imaging, especially the history of the X-ray.

I have published a scholarly monograph on bioethics and pain, and am working on an intellectual history of the first fifty years of X-ray use.

Intellectual property restrictions permitting, I hope to begin putting some of my papers online here.  Feel free to contact me if you wish to read any of them, and I’ll happily send the item(s) along.

I can be reached via FB, email, or Twitter (@prof_goldberg).
